Equal marriage does threaten one thing: religious conservatives' worldview that their "god-given" traditional prejudice is somehow the one "true", "right", and "natural" way, and government going along with it somehow ennobles and validates it. (As opposed to other believers' equally revered "god-given" rules, or to actual reason, empathy, and morality.) And that delusion needs to be threatened! (Yes, I'm preaching to the choir, and possibly a few actual former preachers who are members here!)

Anyway, the person who literally put words in the dog's mouth couldn't have said it better!

This is hilarious, TFA, and so true. I've always wanted an answer to the question just exactly how it is that marriage equality "threatens" "traditional" marriage. Are "straight" marriages so fragile that someone you don't even know getting married in another state somewhere is going to destroy them? David Sedaris has a wonderful short story titled "I Break for Traditional Marriage."

Armagayddon:  the fate of societies that vote for marriage equality.

 

"The weddings were unbelievable. I felt completely underdressed! And the cakes....!" "We put our son Michael into the box the day the referendum passed.... Come on Michael, look at the lovely woman....."

More wonderful quotes from the backlash against that horrible, anti-gay pastor here: Unfair discrimination

(Thanks to Freethinker for bringing this up in the more general "Ethics and Morals" forum!)

Amen ("What he said!" no gods needed) to Carl!

Obviously the pastor who cancelled the gay man's funeral the night before got no help from his supposedly loving and perfect god in being moral and decent!

Sentient, you beat me to sharing the comments I was about to quote! :-)  [to the pastor] "if a loving God existed, He would not allow people like you to use His name to harm others."

And well said about the fake gay man faking a fake religion to distribute fake "gospel condoms" in Vancouver's pride parade! (More at JMG) What would FSM say? The anti-LGBTQ evangelist is actually proud of his elaborate ruse, even lying through his teeth on his application to enter the parade.

And I too hope the Ugandan pride parade took place peacefully!

Thanks for the the update on the Florida church.  I love a good, well-deserved backlash. 

Comment by Daniel W on August 9, 2014 at 12:23pm

Carl, thanks for your words.  I agree with you completely.

Comment by Daniel W on August 9, 2014 at 12:23pm

More on that Florida church.  They riled up many people, and the internet backlash was formidable.  Which I find very rewarding.

A couple of the comments,

Well, you are a shining example of why I no longer believe in God...if a loving God existed, He would not allow people like you to use His name to harm others."

"In Timothy 2:8 we read: 'I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array.' Which is why you also don't allow funeral arrangements for women with braided hear or who wear jewelry. Am I right?
